List of Inverse Bond ETFs

Updated May 8, 2019
Inverse exchange traded funds provide an excellent way for investors and traders to take a trading position which is opposite of the directional view of a particular index or benchmark that is being tracked by the ETF. Inverse ETFs are of two types based on the basket of underlying securities that the ETF invests in. First ones are the Inverse Equity ETFs which allow investors to take directionally opposite position in the equities market, and the second one are the inverse bond ETFs which allow investors an inverse exposure to popular fixed income indexes and benchmarks.
Such inverse bond ETFs are used as a tool for diversification, as well as a tool to profit from the declines observed in the bond market. They essentially work by appreciating in value when the price of certain fixed income indexes declines. These inverse bond ETFs are also called as bear bond ETFs. For instance, an inverse bond ETF that is tracking the larger US Treasury market (benchmark) will increase by 2 percent if the benchmark decreases by 2 percent - that is, the returns of the inverse bond ETFs move in opposite direction of the returns of the benchmark.
Additionally, there are leveraged inverse bond ETFs which also magnify the return by a given factor.
